Certification Body

The GSMA’s members, supported by the SAS auditors, have defined and maintain the Standard for UICC production (SAS-UP), the Consolidated Security Requirements and the Standard for subscription management (SAS-SM).

The SAS Certification Body, made up of GSMA operator members ensures audits are correctly conducted. The Certification Body receives the audit report from the audit team and ultimately decides whether or not the supplier is awarded SAS certification.

The Certification Body delegates responsibility for organizing and scheduling of audits to the GSMA’s professional staff, which provides the SAS-UP audit methodology, SAS-SM audit methodology, auditing agreement and other documentation to participating suppliers.
